PUBLIC SCHOOL PARENTS AND CONCERNED RESIDENTS--ACTION ALERT

Join us in support of Teachers College graduates who are protesting inside their graduation ceremony. 

Tisch, Chancellor of Board of Regents, who is the driving force behind high stakes tests in NY state, 
is scheduled to be a speaker and to receive a medal for distinguished service. She should not receive these honors.

Bring a sign expressing your complaint with Merryl Tisch--

Teachers College Convocation
Tuesday, May 21
St. John the Divine, 112th and Amsterdam
Manhattan, NYC
1 train to 110th St.
be there 12 noon


Stand with us! It will take an hour of your time.
  • We are against Tisch's policy of high-stakes testing statewide

  • They are demoralizing to public school students and teachers
  • They are not imposed on private schools, which her children attended and where she taught
  •  Tisch promotes the proliferation of charter schools instead of quality public schools
Press coverage ends, and ceremony begins, at 9:30
